    Living in Erie, I can tell you the signal for 95-9 Lite FM barely reaches the city of Erie if at all. There really isn’t a format hole in the market either so it would be interesting what they would flip to.

      I totally agree with you. I don’t live in Erie but I know that the signal is barely audible if at all because there is a LPFM station on the exact same frequency right in downtown Erie so it blocks out 95-9 Lite FM. Why the original owners but the station on the frequency in the first place since they were trying to target Erie and they knew that there was a LPFM on 95.9 already I don’t understand.
